Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer’s acclaimed production, the talk of the opera world when it premiered in 2013, sets the action of Verdi’s masterpiece in the neon-lit world of 1960s Las Vegas. In this bold new vision—featured on 60 Minutes—Piotr Beczala is the Duke, a popular entertainer and casino owner; Željko Lučić sings Rigoletto, a comedian and the Duke’s sidekick; and Diana Damrau is Rigoletto’s innocent daughter, Gilda. Štefan Kocán sings the assassin-for-hire Sparafucile and Oksana Volkova makes her Met debut as his seductive sister, Maddalena. Rising conductor Michele Mariotti leads the Verdi masterwork, which features one of the most famous arias in all of opera, “La donna è mobile.”
